NDSU Receives At-Large Berth, Hosting Robert Morris

Fargo, ND (WDAY Sports) - After yesterday's loss, there was a lot of doubt whether NDSU would get an at-large bid into the FCS playoffs. This morning, they found out they were in, earning the final spot in the 20-team FCS playoff field.

For the Bison, it's their first trip to the playoffs since 2000, and first ever since moving up to Division 1.

“When they looked at us, and I believe it was literally at the end of the day, our win over Kansas really helped. Although they had an FBS win too, over Ball State, at the end of the day, they felt that one gave us the nod.”

The Bison will host northeast conference champ Robert Morris Saturday at the Fargodome.

Tickets and tailgating spots for the playoff game are on sale. Season ticket holders have until tomorrow night at 9:00 to buy their same seats. After that, they will go to the general public Tuesday morning at 8:00.
